I drew this gesture from live model in 2019. I used charcoal on light-gray paper. Depicted here is a standing female figure from the front. She's looking to the left with her arms behind. She's leaning on her right leg, which throws her hip to the side. I like the overall gesture of this pose.
This is a gesture drawing of a female figure from the front leaning on a stool. I drew it 2019 from life model. It was probably a 20-minute pose as back then I didn't have the habit of signing every drawing, and can't be 100% sure. Looking at this drawing now, I see a lot … Continue reading Leaning Female Figure Front, Charcoal Drawing
I've been an artist my entire life, but I have never seriously considered drawing or painting people. I did try several times when I was in school, but I would not call those artworks a serious portrait. Ever since I learned about the Society of Figurative Arts, I have been challenging myself with more serious … Continue reading Portrait Drawing Workshop 2018
When I visited Sydney, Australia for the first time, I was mesmerized with plumeria flowers and decided to make a drawing of them. I never saw this tree bloom before, and its leaves looked familiar. Apparently, it's just a look-a-like, but a completely different tree. It's interesting how completely different things might look similar in … Continue reading Plumeria – Botanical Copic Drawing
There was a time, when I never held a Copic in my hands. Thankfully, this was promptly changed by a wonderful gift from my hubby. The pear drawings presented here are my very first experiments with this wonderful medium. I immediately fell in love, and wanted to get more colors. It took me a while … Continue reading Pears Copic Drawings
This piece took me about 30 minutes, and I wish I had done it on a better paper. I used rough newsprint, and it's not the best paper for longer poses. Still, I'm fairly satisfied with the results, especially considering that I didn't get the best vantage point for this pose.
Sometimes, I think of characters from video games while drawing, and then I end up with something heroic ^_^
A couple of quick, but interesting gestures. Especially the one on the left, what is it up to?! The one on the right looks as if it's half-submerged into a bath of milk 😀
I really like the figure on the right. I think for once, torso turned out pretty well ^_^ - Where is your corset? And no stockings!- I'm against them.- But you are not properly dressed.- Who's to say what's proper? What if it were agreed that "proper" meant wearing a codfish on your head? Would … Continue reading Two standing figures, charcoal drawing
I like the flow of this figure a lot, it turned out very fluid I think. Sometimes, I feel sad that I drew a drawing on cheap newsprint, but I keep reminding myself that practice makes it perfect! If I wanted to make a version of a particular drawing on good paper, I could with … Continue reading Leaning figure, charcoal drawing
